It’s possible that I love attaching the hardware as much as I love the sewing. . I’m pretty sure that I have my dad to thank for my small and selective yet very real appreciation and, dare I say *love*, of tools and hardware. . I’ve even got a little collection of metal bits I’ve found lying around in random places. No idea what I’ll do with them but I like them all the same. . Do you have any random collections or interests? . . . . . #madewithlove #shophandmade #handmadeislove #livimade #livimadewithlove #handmadegifts #etsyshop #etsyseller #etsy #mycreativelife #createmakeshare #handmadeshop #happycreativelife #makerslife #makersgonnamake #wristlet #diy #sewist #crafterstools
I read that over Christmas we produce even more waste than usual throughout the year and so being a fan of recycling I made these star garland decorations for the new home with some of the years scrap paper...(which also cast quite cool shadows!) 💌 . . . . . . . . . . #edinburghletters #christmas #christmasdecorations #christmasideas #christmasstationery #stationery #handwriting #handwritten #handlettering #handmade #madewords #paperwork #paperlove #sendlove #create #creative #happycreativelife #recycle #wastenotwantnot
So after a busy weekend @norwichcreativemarket & meeting some fellow lovely talented designers & crafters ( @daisydollsbyjodolton @miasylviaa @dariodesign ) I’m back to work today at Beccles’ charity workshop for adults with special needs. We’re already working on a Spring window display and one of our talented young ladies has been embroidering this beautiful hare & lavender cushion panel today.... The base fabric is a gorgeous remnant of donated vintage striped linen. I then sketched out the design & dots with a Frixion pen - as have recently discovered that the ink disappears once ironed!

Have you ever noticed that when you feel rushed and anxious, you have trouble getting things done and feel scattered, but when you have a looming deadline but are feeling energized and inspired you get a surprising amount done in a short period of time? Here's the thing. Time is real to an extent. There are 24 hours in a day no matter which way you swing it. But on a psychological level, those hours are all relative to your mood and your mindset. That's why getting your mindset and your energy in the right place FIRST can be a game changer for your productivity. Try prioritizing your energy in the morning before you get to that task list. Do one thing that takes an hour or less that will make you feel truly alive. Alignment first, then action. ✨ . . . .

This is the cropped sweater I finished recently, the one that goes with my hat. 😊 . The hat looks really dark in the photo I posted the other day but it’s actually this color. .

Morning, Mondays Core word is Honesty! Mmmm interesting one... I’m thinking about being honest with ourselves. I am a master of self deception. This comes out in my journaling sometimes I want a page to look good but if I’m being honest I have to let go and allow the wonderful world of what’s really going on to unravel onto my page. Anyone else struggle with reality?! ♥️
Good morning beautiful souls! I’m so happy and excited! This morning sun is shining and outside is freezing cold but after weeks of cloudy sky and constant rain I just feel blessed of having those golden rays of sun! ☀️ This week will be an awesome week! I’m applying the @mariekondo method to my administrative space and to my office. It’s the best decluttering method I’ve ever tried! I’ve already applied it to my entire home and now everything is in harmony and sparks of joy 😄 🌈 I can’t wait to get rid of all those old low energies and clean everything to be ready for a great & awesome 2019 rich of HAPPINESS, LOVE, PHOTOGRAPHY to cheer up my beloved clients 😍 So, what’s your plans for this December week? It is also cold where are you living? I’ll be happy to hear from you! 🙏😄😘❤️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #motivation #motivationalquotes #lifeisbeautiful #motivationmonday #dailymotivation #motivational #liveauthentic #happycreativelife #acceptyourself #livemoremagic #thatsdarling #momentsofmine #darlingdetails #creativeentrepreneur #createyourlife #thatauthenticfeeling #lifestylephitographer #lifestylephotography #weddingphotographer #mariekondo #loveisyou #theervrydaygirl #staybossyladies #thehappynow #womenentrepreneurs #socalllifestylephotographer #morninglikethese #girlpreneurs
In questi giorni ho tagliato davvero tanta spugna...per essere precisa, in queste sere, dopo giornate intense che non vedi l'ora finiscano per poter andare a letto! Capisco però che è l'ora di smettere quando rischio, oltre alla stoffa, di tagliarmi anche un dito e quando comincio a fare errori stupidi e a dover scucire...la sera insomma, vale la pena riposare un po'!! Perché allora, mi ritrovo quasi sempre a fare tardi con forbici e cutter? Perché quando vi consegno qualcosa e vedo aprirsi un sorriso, mi ricordo che ne vale davvero la pena! 🌈 Queste sono le bavaglie per l'asilo del mio amico Nicolò @chiara.chia Buon inizio settimana! 🌟 · · ·#handmadewithlove #handcraft #fattocolcuore #fattoamanoperbambini #tessutiperbambini #accessoriperbambini #asilonido #asilo #bavetta #bavaglio #sailor #creadifferente #cretive #mammecreative #happycreativelife #cucitocreativo #instacreative #instamamme #instamum #instacreative #babyboy #littleboy #percorsicreativi #magiadallemani #lemaddine #mamamagocrea #mamamago #setasilo #dicembre
💕Flamboyant Flamingo💕 . Monday’s always seem so much easier to deal with when the weekend has been fabulous, don’t you find? ✨ After receiving some of the most lovely, heartfelt, reassuring messages after my appearance on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas on Friday, I have been in a little bubble of pride since! I was SO bloody nervous watching it, my heart was racing, I almost had a panic attack. I worry so much about how I am perceived, I’ve always been one of those people that wants to be liked by everyone. It’s the bane of my life sometimes, as you just can’t be everyone’s cup of tea, can you! 😬 So thank you soooo much to you lovely ones who made this very emotional, very pregnant lady a very happy bunny indeed!! 🐰 . . . The weekend was made even better by visiting family and enjoying a pre-Christmas day yesterday! I now have a rather large food baby nestled on top of my 36 week baby 🙈 . . . Anyway, I wanted to say HUGE hellooooo to my new followers! 👋🏼 Welcome aboard! I hope you’ll enjoy my crafty/interior/baby spam feed and random stories! 🐛 . . . I also wanted to share this flamingo card I made for @frompaperchase - simply made from a pink pompom and some drawn on legs, neck and head. Then topped with a teeny tiny hat too! Obvs! Because it wouldn’t be Christmas without a flamingo, right?! 🤷🏼‍♀️ . . . . . . . #flamingo #flamingoart #flamingolover #christmascrafts #handmadechristmas #christmascrafting #pompomlove @kirstiemallsopp #kirstieshandmadechristmas
Aww my first two indoor plants not long after I first brought them home🙊🌿 2018 has definitely been the year of indoor plants - I now have a collection of 9 (plus a snake plant and fiddle leaf fig tree in the process of being propagated!). 🌼 What was your first indoor plant? 😊
Sometimes I wonder if I quilt just for the scraps? There is something irresistibly wonderful about the randomness of leftovers. #happinesstoday #iquilt #makestuff #happycreativelife #vintagesheets #quilter #quiltsofinstagram

I picked some very specific colours for a very specific project that I cannot wait to share!! Eep! Just like an excited kid on Christmas, I've been waking up early each morning to get working + making on my project. Little by little it has come together and I'm super bursting at the seams to share it! 😁🤪🎉✌️💕😃😁😁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ironlaksugar #neutralcolourscheme #spraypaint #ironlakanddesign #sugarartistsacrylic #spraycan #spraycans #craftlife #fiftyshadesofnature #makersofinstagram #australianartist #sunshinecoastcreatives #sunshinecoastmaker #makermovement #australianmakers #creativelife #makersgonnamake #girlscreate #makingof #workinprogress #behindthescenes #creativeprocess #whitespace #neutralcolours #ironlak #inspiredbynature #mycreativelife #loveofcolour #happycreativelife #earthtones

Sunday planday! I am a huge fan of my Happy Planner 😊 Keeping an organized schedule helps me stay centered and productive all week long. What's your favorite brand of planner?
I always had strange connection with this #jewelrybox 😶 and used to keep it in a dark secret spot 🙈untill one day a sweet lady told me she likes the most my green boxes 😲 I couldn't sleep well that night... a guild came that I told her i have only 2 green seaurchin boxes when they were 3 indeed. Even more the hidden one was probably the most special. All #seashells are collected from the Yucatan Peninsula - #seaurchin , sand and the coral are from the Caribbean shore and the twin #seasnailshell from the Gulf of Mexico. And here is the reason of my troubles with this project - i actually found the snailsshells at the jungle on the way to the beach 🙈 they were abandoned after use from the local fisherman's 🎣🐚🐚 all empty and dry. I took just few from thousands but my hard was 💔 from the vew. And somehow i never found beauty in the final product. TODAY I broke the box by accident so no glory happy 'afterlife' for those sceletons 😣 I felt I need to share the story and the only one pic I have left after all... * * #mermaidtreasure #mermaidjewelry #seaurchins #seatreasures #shells #naturaldecorations #smallgifts

This week I decided to try and paint my textile designs on canvas. The results are a bit different from the design I originally intended to paint. The stenciling technique I use for fabric didn’t really work on canvas and I had to improvise as my 1st attempt was a mess. I changed the way I stencil afterwards and it worked much better 😉. #paintings #creativelife #textileartist #creativehappylife #fashiondesigner #mixedmediapainting #canvaspainting #havingfun 😄 #happycreativelife #francoiselamasolet #artisticmind #funwithpaint #expressyourself #expressyourstyle

#SundaySpotlight featuring @amerleyo , The best piece of advice I received this year is: “Be kind. It’s simple to do, but we often get too caught up in our busy lives to take the time to thank an assistant for their help or go up to the person standing alone at a work function. Kindness doesn’t cost a thing, yet it can make all the difference, and you never know what work opportunities could arise from something so simple.” ❣️ #getcroissant

The first thing that sprung to my mind with the prompt "Hideous" for Day 8 was Picasso and his women. So here is me as one of his women.
